Theresa May calls Donald Trump to say his steel tariffs are 'unjustified'

Theresa May calls Donald Trump to say his steel tariffs are 'unjustified'

With its presidential election 26 days away, Mexico's government imposed a 20 percent tariff on USA pork, apples and potatoes and 20 to 25 percent tariffs on cheese and bourbon.

Mexico said it would impose import duties on $3 billion worth of usa products, including cheese, bourbon, pork and others, making good on its threats that it would retailiate for us tariffs on steel and aluminum.

The president of the U.S. National Pork Producers Council said Mexico accounted for almost 25 percent of all pork shipments past year, adding that "a 20 percent tariff eliminates our ability to compete effectively in Mexico".

The EU has submitted a list of USA products to the WTO that could be slapped with tariffs, which includes food products like corn, rice, peanut butter and orange juice.

At issue are 25 percent tariffs on steel and 10 percent of aluminum that come from the European Union, fees Trump slapped on abruptly late last week even as the two sides were discussing possibly extending a temporary waiver the European bloc had been granted.

"Somehow it's sending a clear message that this sort of thing benefits no one, and affects all of us", he said.

The three groups launching the campaign: Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Prosperity and the LIBRE Initiative, are urging the president to lift the recent tariffs on aluminium and steel imports as well as the proposed tariffs on other imports from China.

Canada has already granted some access to its dairy markets in its other big free trade deals with the European Union and the re-booted Trans-Pacific Partnership, the 11-country Pacific Rim pact that does not include the U.S.

Charles and David Koch are two of the Republican Party's biggest billionaire donors, supporting an agenda of endless, multinational free trade agreements and open borders that keep US wages stagnant. May will not push for a United Kingdom exemption to the new U.S. border tariffs of 25% on EU imports of rolled steel and 10% on aluminium as the United Kingdom will join the bloc's push for European exemption. It's more interesting that the Kochs are willing to put some money into their opposition to Trump's trade agenda-money that might otherwise go to Trump-supporting Republican candidacies and the parts of the president's agenda they like. They've previously clashed with the administration over immigration.

The backlash from the tariffs dominated the meeting of G7 finance ministers in Canada's Whistler resort over the weekend, with Bruno Le Maire, French foreign minister, labelling the US's actions as "unjustifiable".

The EU, Canada and Mexico were granted exemptions when Trump imposed the tariffs in March, saying a reliance on imported metals threatened national security.

The dispute with Mexico over tariffs makes it more hard to conclude months of talks on renegotiating NAFTA between the three countries, talks that began a year ago because Trump said the deal needed to be reworked to better serve the United States.

"AFP-Kansas Foundation wishes David and his family well", Jeff Glendening, AFP Foundation Kansas state director, said in an e-mail to the Eagle.

In short, he argues for modification that recognizes the leverage that the United States has as the largest economy in the world, the largest importer and the third-largest exporter. Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said his country would now "surely" look to Europe for pork products, used in many traditional dishes in Mexico.
